Céilí fun for local primary school children

Primary school children taking part in a traditional Irish Céilí

Published: 4th December 2015

More than 200 primary school pupils from Fermanagh took part in a traditional Irish Céilí in St. Macartin’s Cathedral Hall, Enniskillen, earlier this week.

The Primary Schools Céilí or Céilí na mBunscoileanna, marked the end of a Fermanagh and Omagh District Council cultural programme, where primary school pupils had the opportunity to learn a number of Irish Céilí dances.

Over the course of the two month programme, pupils from Erne Integrated Primary School, Enniskillen; St Ninnidh’s, Derrylin; St Martin’s, Garrison; St Paul’s, Irvinestown; St Mary’s, Maguiresbridge; Gaelscoil An Traonaigh, Lios na Sceithe; St Joseph’s, Ederney and St Mary’s, Brookeborough learned a number of Ceilí dances. These included The Walls of Limerick; The Siege of Ennis; The Waves of Tory; A Barn Dance; Shoe the Donkey and a line dance called An Dreoilín.

With live traditional music provided by The Mc Glone Brothers from Omagh, the toe tapping, hand clapping Céilí allowed the children to put all their hard work and dance tuition into action while having lots of fun.

Each of the attending schools also performed a unique party piece on stage which included songs in Irish and instrumental pieces by schools’ music groups.
